male cheerleaders

Male cheerleaders will high kick and twirl alongside female cheerleaders for the first time in NFL history this season. But don’t expect a repeat of the Prancing Elites, a non-conforming dance troupe from Alabama who starred in a reality series on the Oxygen Network in 2015.

Quinton Peron and Napoleon Jinnies will be the NFL’s first male cheerleaders to cheer alongside female cheerleaders when the Los Angeles Rams and New Orleans Saints take the field, according to published reports.

“Still can’t belive [sic] I’m one of the first males in history to be a pro NFL cheerleader! Everyone’s support and love has been insane! .. thank you and GO RAMS!”

Peron and Jinnies were hired after they auditioned for the Rams earlier this year.

There teams have had men as part of their dance squad, but this is the first time in history that men will dance alongside women on the field.

“The process has been great, everyone has been really nice to me, and I can’t wait to see where this goes,” said Jesse Hernandez, 25, who will cheer alongside the women for the Saints this season. Hernandez says his mother told him it was “my time to shine.”

    ___________________________________________________________
    I’m good with this. A little bit of Tumbling, back flips and catching the Female Cheerleaders is what they need to be doing.

  • Nik

    Well…there are males in high school and collegiate cheerleading so I guess this is par for the course. Will probably take some getting used to if they are not playing the traditional role of base support for the pyramid and lifting and what not.

  • hi-liter

    There were Male College Cheerleaders WAYYYYYYYYY before Obama dear……

  • Rayne

    I don’t watch for the cheerleaders ? so ????

  • Nik

    Exactly! I forget they are there 99.9% of the time.

  • Being bad is way more fun

    This has nothing to do with President Obama since they are taking the field now its more of a Trump legacy !!!!

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    People will blame that man for a delay in the season change…smh

  • Being bad is way more fun

    President Bush was an actual cheerleader for goodness sake so whats the big deal

  • CrunchyBlack1

    they just gone add sexually charged men, to an already homoerotic sport. i can see it now, aaron rodgers caught in the locker room with anthony zest from the new spirit squad.

  • Rayne

    Right!

  • Being bad is way more fun

    That would be really hot to watch .. I just hope there are cameras to catch it all !!!!

  • Phillybruh

    Trump was a male cheerleader at Penn though…lol

  • Rere

  • Being bad is way more fun

    It was W

  • Quitedeliteful

    As long as they do what male cheerleaders do. I don’t want to see girly-twirly prancing male cheerleaders…

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    But these are the same people that won’t tolerate kneeling.

  • Being bad is way more fun

    Black homosexuals do not have the highest Aids rate in America just new cases .. White males have the highest case of Aids in America and I agree it has nothing to do with this article plus your facts are wrong !!!!

  • Trace da Ace

    well…..its 2018….hell they have female football players…so why not have male cheerleaders??? At this point, if it aint hurting nobody…..then go with it…and if it is hurting folks….DON’T WATCH….moving along……oh and side note…I saw a video of 3 Latino men twerking….and for real…they was doing it better than the woman were…..there are more pressing issues in our world today for folks to be turning up noses at male cheerleaders….hell there have ALWAYS been male cheerleaders….so this aint new….

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    I don’t see a problem with it. It’s just amazing how everything is tolerated or welcomed except kneeling. IJS.

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    Ummm, its a NO…..for me Dog!

  • CrunchyBlack1

    which is weird because them rednecks hate gheys more than blacks.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    More than half (58%, 10,223) of African Americans who received an HIV diagnosis were gay or bisexual men.d
    Among African American gay and bisexual men who received an HIV diagnosis, 39% (3,993) were young men aged 25 to 34.
    Forty-seven percent (8,501) of those who received an AIDS diagnosis in the United States were African American.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    I think they hate blacks more. They’ll accept a Brokeback mountain, sheep herder before a black.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    the shyt going to far now

  • sunni_daze

    So these men can express themselves on the field but the black players kneeling can not. Yeah fuck the NFL, good luck cheer dudes

  • Alextra Ballard

    I can already see the backlash coming….

  • sunni_daze

    The emasuclation of the black man is a real agenda

  • FukkFolks2018
  • Vegas1989

    When I saw the commercial for the Prancing Elites I fell straight on the floor and busted out crying and laughing. My puppy dog thought we were playing a game…It was too funny.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Can’t wait til they try to infiltrate Jerry’s famous Cowgirls

  • Trey

    hell nah

  • Libra80sBaby

    Bruuuh…women can’t have SHIT

  • cherrypie
  • Sid

    Sigh ?

  • leapyearpisces

    Yep, that should be interesting because I think that will be a hard “NO” since the CowGIRLS are a brand within themselves.

  • Realnigga101

    NFL gone gay

  • Bea Mack,ThaLiteSkinMissCelie
  • SpiceGirl

    will they get the same pay as the girls?? Because ive heard, the cheerleaders don’t get paid a lot to do the games……just wondering
    Oh I will say this….im cool with this….My sister has a dance team (Next Level) with about 70 kids in all and its about maybe 4 boys on the squad…soooooooooooooo

  • Bea Mack,ThaLiteSkinMissCelie

    ?????

  • Fire & Ice

    ???

  • Rainbowbelow

    I read somewhere that the more experienced cheerleaders make about 15,000 per season.

  • iWasteTime

    Male cheerleaders aren’t new and this proclamation has nothing to do with President Obama.
    4 Presidents were cheerleaders.
    George W. Bush. Ronald Reagan, Dwight D. Eisenhower. …
    Franklin D. Roosevelt.
    In your attempt to place blame, your ignorance came shining through

  • Yoni7

    Like those dudes from Alabama that had that show? LOL

  • CrunchyBlack1

    In the sports arena, they put that aside (60 mins) for team pride. now throw in a perceived ghey close to them beckies they love, is gonna be a hot button issue for them.

  • SpiceGirl

    really? had to Goggle ——————->Nowadays, NFL cheerleaders earn somewhere between $75 to $150 per game, and might make as much as $50 an hour for special corporate appearances

  • iWasteTime

    The comments in this post are crazy.
    From blaming President Obama to “shame” at them being black.
    Male cheerleaders are not new, and they are prevalent at the High School and College level. As I stated below, 4 Presidents were cheerleaders.
    Ignorance and projected homophobia makes this a stigma. Cheerleading is for both male and females, no matter the sexual preference.

  • CrunchyBlack1

    you’d love that huh lol

  • hottlanta

    I am sure the fab group prancing elites are very happy. Especially thé fat prégnant one in the front.

  • Phillybruh

    They get scholarships for it.

  • dru and neil

    For all he football fans, is this a big deal? Yay or nay? I don’t watch or follow games so I don’t know if the cheerleaders have any bearing over anything.

  • hottlanta

    As long as he can twirl and do flips in bed we good. Dont b doing all that stuf on the field then come home talking bout u tired. No mam.

  • Cocoa Rose

    Did you not read what the person wrote dum dum. It is interesting that you pink males and females NEVER write about your population steeply declining.

  • Rainbowbelow

    For me, I don’t think it should be a big deal because they usually only show the cheerleaders a couple of seconds before they go to a commercial.

  • FOR COMMENT

    The NFL is officially ruined. It all started when they let Sam get drafted and kiss his boyfriend on live tv..SICK

  • dru and neil

    Okay that’s what I’m looking for. I didn’t know if the dancers played a large enough part for folks to care.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Well don’t know why the “pink” people do that I am black and only concerned about what harms black peoples

  • dru and neil

    So if the stamina is up, it’s all good!?

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Now then foot ball players will not kneel about that

  • Miss Thang

    lol

  • dru and neil

    Cheer is a hardcore sport that requires great skill as well. People for some reason dismiss it, but male and female, they are athletes too.

  • Miss Thang

    Nope. Men take over every damn thing. Women can’t have shit and black women really can’t have shit.

  • Miss Thang

    the prancers lol

  • Miss Thang

    of cooooourse

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Well one of the ways they are doing it is by giving the black Woman a check to run her sons dad off and put in her man she can be the momma and the daddy but I bet you don’t say any thing about that

  • Die Antwoord

    These “men” will do what they are going to be paid for. Players, on the other hand, are not paid to kneel. They are paid to entertain and attract viewers.
    If you still cannot comprehend the difference, try next time to kneel during a conference or a meeting at your job. That is, IF you have a job…

  • SoulfulLove

    I see a football player and male cheerleader scandal in the future https://media.giphy.com/media/3o6vXHsa57HVEVt3zi/giphy.gif

  • Being bad is way more fun

    This proves my point that the new cases are more on the African American side but the existing cases are white gay – bi men so thanks for just proving my point

  • Being bad is way more fun

    I had the biggest crush on him growing up !!!!

  • Being bad is way more fun

    It will be the ones that always talk about how much they hate gay men of course lol

  • Being bad is way more fun

    One gay man kissing his boyfriend ruined football for you I think you may be gay !!!!

  • Being bad is way more fun

    Im sure the male cheerleaders could beat the hell out of a lot of them football players … They are still men and just as fit or not fitter than the ball players !!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Most college football teams have had male and female cheer-leading squads forever. But for some reason the NFL teams have always been all-female. So this would be a new thing for the NFL… but overall I don’t this this is such a big deal.

  • Being bad is way more fun

    Football and most other sports have been gay so nothing new about that. Trust me its more gay football players than these 2 male cheerleaders.. I cant wait to see who they will be dating or sneaking around with on the team !!!

  • Being bad is way more fun

    How so male cheerleaders have been around since sports were invented. So whats different now

  • FukkFolks2018

    He is no longer here. On this earth. RIP to him. But I still love this clip.

    Other lady: What do you call THAT?
    Lydia Grant/Debbie Allen: You call THAT fierce.
    Girl whose audition he crashed: Fukk you Leroy this was MY audition

    ICONIC

  • Being bad is way more fun

    So is it emasuclation when the men cheer for college and high school .. Men are men and the only thing different is you have a problem with it.

  • Chocolate

    I’m sick of seeing men kick their legs in the air.

  • GUY A LAICHE

    American males period.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!

  • hottlanta

    It pays the bills n free football tickets. Hell yeah

  • SoulfulLove

    you know it

  • Prince Zuko

    Dem dudes look wild gay in that pic

  • Stationarity

    I wonder what the statistics are? Are there any that support your hypothesis? Is the rate of gay black males higher? Is the rate of gay men higher from homes headed by a single mom? Is the rate just higher in black homes? Just curious. I hear people Blame it on single moms a lot lot but I know wayyy too many gay guys who had both their parents to recognize the pattern myself. I also wonder is the rate of homosexuality higher for males or females. Just thinking aloud. I also wonder why you think people of other races end up gay? And what about gay men that are not feminine? Is it emasculation just because we are assuming they are gay or emasculation because they want to dance? Just curious…

  • sunni_daze

    Yeah, but not like they do black men, they go extra far with bm.

  • sunni_daze

    Cheerleaders don’t get paid. And if they its below minimum wage and the same as not getting paid.

  • sunni_daze

    No its not. I know plenty of single mothers who’s son’s aren’t out here doing high kicks and dressing like girls. And lets not act like these so called men aren’t out here dodging their responsibility.

  • C Mack

    Right like the ones complaining here lol

  • C Mack

    Boy (you’re acting like one), relax! The cheerleaders don’t get that much screen time anyway

  • C Mack

    Anyone speaking negatively is ignorant?????.
    These are athletes.

  • Die Antwoord

    Show of ladyboys – is a new thing in liberal America. Soon every boy in American schools will dream about becoming a ladyboy.

  • Elevated Soul

    I’m telling you…..Many women support the gay agenda but those dudes don’t like women.I really could care less about the NFL but for those women who like those dudes,you got new competition…..LOL!

  • Nathan Hastings

    Black folks are ignorant and judgmental.

  • Die Antwoord

    Ok. They do what they are required to do to attract viewers. That is exactly what players are supposed to do as well.

  • Rhondalousey

    Yes! What tf is this world coming to? Why cant men be men got dammit!

  • Rhondalousey

    FDR was a cheerleader? I thought he had polio.

  • Eileen

    I agree with you. I was praying the gay movement would not inflitrate the lockerroom of the NFL the last bastion of manhood in America! but lo and behold under president ohomo it happened and he celebrated harder than sorry sam who wasn’t good to begin with.

  • MRiGOThim

    As long as they look like men no tights or cheerleader skirts…now I’m bout to watch Bring It On :P

  • CocoBabe88

    NFL cheerleading isn’t the same as competitive cheerleading. So I don’t see the need to add men unless they’ve added tumbling and dismounts, which I doubt. Liberals will deconstruct and tear down every American tradition with critical theory until this country is destitute and barren. Thanks liberals!

  • Nathan Hastings

    I’m not

  • freelancepimp .

    So were there slots created for them or did they take up spots that would have gone to women.

  • freelancepimp .

    They support it because they see it as an affront to masculinity. Problem is they never expected gays to actually encroach on females spaces and compete with them for historical and modern feminine pursuits.

  • Dun Dilly

    . war on women is real.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Twerk for me boy

  • C Mack

    You’re not down for a male cheerleader? Why is it even something to think about? I can definitely understand you not wanting to see homosexuality on display, but this isn’t men kissing.

    They’re on the squad mostly to lift women and clap their hands. It’s not like they’re gonna be making out.

  • C Mack

    They might not even be gay lol.

    Are male teachers, nurses, etc demons, too? Surely something must be wrong with men who take jobs traditionally taken by women.

  • Evillene

    The NFL is the last bastion of manhood in America??!!!! If you’re looking for men try the boardroom at J.P. Morgan Chase, or most other Fortune 500 companies.

  • Phillybruh

    Who says its liberals last I checked NFL teamowners are white and republican. They ok’d this!

  • MimiCollazo

    This is an interesting concept – male cheerleaders in the NFL. At the high school and college level, this is very real. One of my former co-workers was a male cheerleader in college and would explain how they had to work out just as hard as the rest of the athletes. He was hella built and probably the furthest from a so-called ladyboy than a lot of the dudes I know. He was definitely a ladies man. Had a wife and two kids with a third on the way and still flirting with the next woman. Hear him tell it them male cheerleaders were way more about flexing with the female cheerleaders than with the football players. These NFL players aren’t supposed to be fraternizing with the cheerleaders anyway so this should have zero impact on them.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Doesn’t matter…we don’t support the NFL at my house.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    I’m not really into football but I don’t remember seeing the cheerleaders do any kind of dance on TV. I guess you gotta be there in person

  • CocoBabe88

    Liberal feminist and progressives have been pushing for this for years. Watch the news! They targeted cheerleading, nascar, promotional models, etc.

  • jason rite

    ANY MAN SPLITTING WITH TIGHTS ON IN THE AIR IS UNNATURAL

  • TheOwley

    Colleges have men cheerleaders but they represent a very masculine role. The NFL opening the door to males to cheerlead will be problematic as the men representing will most likely try to copy the women and people will not go for that. If the NFL tries to dictate masculinity, there will be a problem.

  • nicfury420

    What would really be interesting to see if they get paid the same as the women. Some squads have started suing their teams for not paying them enough. There’s already a gender pay gap issue in this country. Wouldn’t that be something if these dudes came in making more $$ from jump?
